Trends in Cosmetic Dentistry

Cosmetic dentistry has been around for a long time. It’s believed the first dentures were made way back in 700 B.C. The materials and methods have changed over the years, but the aim of cosmetic dentistry has always been to create a healthy, appealing smile. How do we do that today?

Faster Crowns

Crowns are nothing new — they are one of the most requested cosmetic dental procedures done today. What is new is the speed and efficiency in which crowns can be created and placed on the tooth. Baldwinsville Gentle Dentistry uses porcelain, which is bio-compatible, can be matched to the color and shape of your teeth, and can be nearly impossible to tell any difference from your other teeth.


This is another cosmetic dentistry procedure that has been around for a while but is one of the more popular ones for improving the appearance of your teeth. Veneers can fix minor imperfections, such as a chipped or cracked tooth, gaps and spaces, and stained or discolored teeth, and shape teeth so they are uniform. Unlike bleach, veneers offer a permanent solution to whitening as well.

A Focus on Comfort

The focus of our team is to provide a relaxed, pleasant, caring, family-oriented environment.
